Found Money Around Town

Howdy! It's been a few weeks since I've posted but I've been finding money pretty regularly. Today in fact I found a quarter in a bowling alley parking lot. The other day I found some coins at the dollar store and the grocery store. There is lots of money lying around waiting to be found!

Besides the $2.48 I've found, I found a Canadian 25 cent piece and a 1977 Italian lira 50 cent coin. The lira went out of circulation in 1990 so this was a cool find!

I also saw some elk grazing this weekend. So cool!

Have you found any money recently? Please share your finds with us!

Every Penny I Find Is Exciting

I don't have too much exciting to report. Since I last posted I've found $1.65 in change. Ka-ching! Actually every penny I find is exciting! 

I mostly find these coins on walks and in stores. I do find coins in drive through lanes of fast food restaurants (I rarely eat at these places but walk through the parking lots and drive through lanes), in parking lots (sometimes I spot a coin under a car or right beside it and wait for the people to leave and nab it), and on sidewalks. I have absolutely no shame, in case you hadn't noticed. 

Where do you find money?

Found Money a Month Later

It looks like time has just slipped away from me. I last posted on February 13 and here it is March 13. Cause or coinky-dink? Do you know what that's from? Well, the first time I heard it was from my kids (way back in the day). They'd heard it on Full House.


Anywho, I found $2.41 in that month, almost as much as I'd found all of this year at last post ($2.70). So with this bit added my grand total for 2017 of found money is a whopping $5.11. Woo hoo!

But that's good. It beats that lousy year I had when I only found $4.91 for the whole year!

There's nothing too special about these coins. but one penny is mangled. In fact a little chunk is missing out of one side. Oh well. 

I found most of this money on floors of stores, in parking lots, the regular places.

Have you found any money lately? Do tell!

Found Money Blog: $1.16 found

Well, since we last spoke, I've found $1.16 all in coins. Sorry about the glare on this photo but here's the money I've found since I last posted.

I haven't found any bills this year yet. Darn it!

Today I found a quarter on the floor of a grocery store next to a coin machine. Yay! I look all around those coin machines and I bet half the time I find a penny at least. 

This time, I found 8 foreign coins in the change tray of a coin machine. I don't get that. I guess people just don't want the coins. Hmmm. I do! I always grab them! I found 1 Canadian dime, 4 Euro coins (2 dimes and a 20 cent and a 50 cent Euro), and 3 Mexican coins. 

Where do you find money?

In case you don't find a lot of money, you can always buy some on Amazon!

Found Money the End of January

This first month of the new year is about gone. Since my last post, I've found 57 cents. I'm happy with that. Where did I find the coins? The usual places:  parking lots, coin machine trays, floors of stores, you get the idea.

Where have you found money lately? I love hearing about where people find money and the amount they found.
